Health IT has recently completed several large initiatives for the college, described in greater detail in the expandable listing below.

UCF Health Clinical EHR

Health IT is working with clinical administration, staff, and providers to migrate to a new Electronic Health Records (EHR) system in Fall 2018.  The EHR implementation is projected to be approximately 6 months of team effort to analyze/rebuild workflows, establish interface operability with external partners and biomedical devices, migrate current patient data, adequately document procedures and policies, as well as train all users. The project will have two parallel efforts, as UCF Health and Student Health Services have both selected eClinicalWorks as their EHR partner and has initiated project kick-off in May 2018.

Please come back here, for more updates on the project progression.

Health Sciences Texting Solution

Health IT is building a Health Sciences texting solution to keep the campus community up-to-date with need to know information about emergency and environmental events. Users will have the ability to opt-in/out of several keyword-based texting information threads, specific to targeted audiences. The implementation of TXT180 will happen in Summer 2018 and additional information and subscription management will be available at the Health IT Website.

Mobile Device Management (MDM)

Health IT will begin implementing AirWatch Mobile Device Management in Summer 2018 for all of its mobile device users.

AirWatch will allow for the addition of new devices quickly and easily provision apps and policies without IT involvement.  Some noted features include:

  • Configure devices with bulk provisioning programs such as the Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP), Knox Mobile Enrollment and Android zero-touch enrollment
  • Deploy public, internal or bulk-purchased apps to devices automatically or to an enterprise app catalog for on-demand install
  • Enable users to self-activate devices by entering their corporate credentials in a simple MDM onboarding workflow
  • Connect to enterprise email, VPN, Wi-Fi, content, intranet sites and other backend resources
  • Configure MDM policies for device restrictions, layout, settings access, notifications and more and assign based on OS or ownership type (BYO or corporate-owned)

Email Encryption

Health IT is working with UCF IT Unified Communications to bring an email encryption solution to the Health Sciences community.  Following a thorough vetting process, the university has decided to bring ZIX Email Encryption online Spring 2018, which will reside on top of the current university Office 365 email offering.  .

Email remains the most used communication tool for business. As data breaches increase and privacy legislation expands to address the perpetuation of cyber crime, use of transparent and easy to implement email encryption is a cyber security imperative.

Health Sciences Campus - Network Refresh Project

UCF College of Medicine will begin a Health Sciences Campus Network Refresh in Fall 2018. As part of life-cycle management of the equipment and the continual assurance of a high-performing secure network infrastructure, Health IT is working closely with UCF IT: Network Services to schedule replacement of end-of-life hardware through a five year phased project.
